Fashion and nostalgia. Can the two mix? But of course they can! There is nothing better than when you wear that one shirt that you associate with a fantastic memory. For example, a shirt that you wore to your favorite concert, etc. But you can also wear things that carry importance in the form of accessories. Beaded and threaded bracelets have become really popular when people want to carry around memories with them. For instance, I have an array of bracelets that I literally never take off, all of which have a story associated with them.
This Fashionisto was spotted with not only a fashionable outfit but one with character. In addition to his polo and cuffed jeans, he sported a trendy snapback and some navy canvas shoes. But what added character to this outfit were his nicely decorated arms. Upon this find, he explained the little significance of each bracelet adding up to some funny stories and nostalgic throwbacks. When jewelry means something to you, it becomes a true accessory rather than something that wears you. That is the beautiful thing about passed down memorabilia or items that were given as presents. The fact that he wears these bracelets are his way of wearing some of his memories right on his arm! Quite a fantastic accessory that flatters but also reminds.
In addition to his outfit as a whole, he successfully pulled off a casual summer outfit perfect for the Seattle weather. The biggest trick to dressing for Seattle weather: layers! This Fashionisto nailed it with the sweater he sported on top of his polo. Overcast in the morning and the blaring sunshine in the afternoon, layers are how Fashionistas and Fashionistos get by in the city of bipolar weather. He topped off his outfit with a fantastic snapback reminiscent of something you could find in a thrift store. Overall, a fashion victory that not only impressed but ensued a smile!
